• “I don’t know if I’d lobby for it” – RAW Star On A Match With The Rock
Current WWE Champion Big E recently spoke with ‘Newsday’ and was asked if he wants to face WWF Legend The Rock in a match.
Here’s what Big E said:
“I would love that. If the opportunity comes along, of course I’m snatching it up. I don’t know if I’d lobby for it. The one that I’ve been lobbying for is the Goldberg match, because he was my idol as a kid. But, you don’t get any better than The Rock.
As far as I know, he’s still the biggest box office draw in Hollywood, and he’s from WWE.
That is incredible. What he did in this company — just being absurdly charismatic and entertaining — he is the blueprint. He broke the mold. You know, when people ask me about my proudest career accomplishment, I often will cite our promo segment with The Rock.
It wasn’t even a match. We just had a promo segment with The Rock a few years ago. Going out there and taking a Rock Bottom, that was pretty wild, pretty cool. So I would absolutely love that match, for sure.”
Big E lost to Universal Champion Roman Reigns in the main event of WWE Survivor Series 2021 pay-per-view.
Also during this PPV, the seeds more The Rock vs. Roman Reigns were planted. Tap here to read more.
